Issues & Advocacy

Cross and Dome webIn addition to ministering to the immediate needs and hurts of people, God also calls us to engage those structures and systems which create or foster brokenness and injustice. Central responds by seeking to speak out boldly, faithfully, prophetically and effectively on issues in our church, and in our society. We are guided by our understanding that “successful” advocacy is faithful advocacy, in which we listen carefully for the voice of God, and earnestly seek to discern God’s will as to where and when we should be advocating in church and civic arenas. The Issues and Advocacy Committee is the vehicle through which Central identifies priority areas for advocacy and responds through education and action in our church, our denomination, and city, state, and national government.
